Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Can't tell how much is a joke but squats are not the group that is allied to tau or gave them ion tech. That was the demiurg. Similar height but no one has seen the demiurg outside of their full body suits. They are closer to gnomes in terms of their tech. Your new to 40k aren't you? Squats are the...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Assuming that we get a Stratagem that lets one unit shoot twice, a 9 man Crisis team with all out Fusion would be devastating.... As for the HBC statline, I guess you are certainly right, Arka. The 2 damage in uncharged mode would just be too much. But you never know... ;) Only vs tanks and monster...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

However, I would say they need to be around half the price because the FWs have only about 1/2 as much damage potential over all. the extra 6 inch range and +1 str weapon don't quite make up for the 4+ BS over the 3. Even then, you're not really accounting for the vastly different melee abilities. ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

You mean efficiency per point? Yes, for shooting only of course, because space marines have other advantages. A FW is almost as good as a SM at shooting, and they do cost a little less...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The upsides will come from massive point drops on base costs and weaponry, and massive buff to weapons characteristics. Sometimes both, which can make for some crazy stuff. Like a Heavy 18 S6 -1 2dmg gun for 35 points ;) . You said you were waiting for GW to announce stuff before divulging too much...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Well if there will be reasonable alternatives, there is no needed to spam commanders. I'm not annoyed that I can't spam commanders as I've always run 2 since 5th never more it does annoy me that tyranids can still have 5 hive tyants in 1 SCD (though if smite spam nerf is fully implemented it won't ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Sorry, that was a bit confusing. Savior Protocols is the same as before, but happens only on a 2+. If people are already complaining about T’au, here a few negative things haha. 1 commander per detachment No changes to the markerlight table No improvement to BS across the board Railguns are the sam...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Though the actual bodyguards rule is you take the 2+ after failing saves, against ap- weapons this would make saviour Protocol hilariously strong I must be missing something. As far as I know, Saviour Protocol involves a drone intercepting a shot before it hits a battlesuit or infantry model. This ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The change to Saviour Protocols is something similar to what Crisis Bodyguards do and Shadowsun's rule with Stealths suits. We have to roll like a 2+ for it now? Well, that was to be expected i guess. Could make Shield Generators possibly viable on XV8s, to stop the shots that slip through. Though ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Isn't deny the witch only at 18" range? If it is then nothing from any army can deny backline protective spells. Yeah, there seem to be two general types- small auras that hamper all psyker powers, and mid-range abilities like Deny the Witch. I think a DtW-style ability would be much more usef...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I might agree with Missile Pods, but I actually -Really- like Rail Rifles where they are. I always take at least 2 per pathfinder squad. They are just an amazing weapon. I'm pretty sure it's not in vogue to say that... but yeah, I love Rail Rifles. I think my returns for Rail Rifles and my returns ...

Personal request: make our missile pods and rail rifles less obscenely expensive. I would have them be more obscenely powerful :P I agree with the rest I might agree with Missile Pods, but I actually -Really- like Rail Rifles where they are.

Re: What has been your favorite "Bad" list to play in 8th pre codex?

The first game of 8th I played was a slightly adapted list from 6th as I only ever played 1 game of 7th (don't blame me for the bad detachment layout I was new to the way if thinking and just wanted to get into the game) Battalion detachment Commander 2 missile pod, fusion blaster and shield generat...

EWO and characters

In the recent custodes FAQ about their stratagem that allows them to shoot deepstriking enemies it states that if a character could be a target they can only be shot at if they are closest model. I didn't know that this was stated in other faq's as plenty of other factions can do the same thing so d...
